Dear Parents: All of our missionaries serving in the Moore, Oklahoma area are safe. The City of Moore, Oklahoma located just south of OKC sustained heavy damage and loss of life today asa powerful tornado cut its way across the city about 3:15 pm CT. Our hearts and prayers go out to the people who have lost so much today. Again, all the missionaries serving in the affected areas are safe. The rest of the missionaries checked in safe earlier today. We are blessed again today.
In the coming days our missionaries will be called upon to help with the clean up from this devastating storm. We are asking the missionaries who do not have learther gloves to buy some in the next couple of days. We are also asking those who can afford to buy boots to do so. These boots will help prevent foot injuries from nails that could be sustained during the clean up. There will be some ability in the future to reimburse missionaries for boot purchases. As future storms occur, I will keep you updated (provided we have power). If you don't hear from me by email after the storms clear following a tornado outbreak, call the Missionary Department. I will have notified the Missionary Department by phone and confirmed the safety of our missionaries. Thank you for you prayers and for your wonderful sons and daughter.
